Compiling open source forensic tools with mingw
Many open source computer forensic tools can be cross-compiled with MinGW. This allows you to create Windows executable directly from a Macintosh computer or Linux machine without using the Microsoft VC++ environment.
On a Mac using MacPorts:
$ sudo port selfupdate $ sudo port install i386-mingw32-binutils i386-mingw32-gcc \ i386-mingw32-libunicows i386-mingw32-runtime \ i386-mingw32-w32api
note: If you get the error message 'warnings treated as errors' you will need to find the Makefile where -Werror is defined and erase it
